Local Restaurant Closes

Posted 6:00 pm CDT 7/25/04

Jonesboro, AR--A Jonesboro eatery has closed it doors for good over the weekend.

            Perkins Family Restaurant and Bakery was a popular college hang out when it first opened on Caraway.

            But now the store remains empty, a closed sign hanging on the front sign on Caraway.

            A short letter posted on the front door blames an ending lease as the reason for the departure.
